ISV Architect Evangelist Bruce Kyle of Microsoft and MVP Stuart Celarier explore the new languages features in C#. It's a Whirlwind Tour of the important language features of C# 4. Stuart describes each major feature and why it is useful. But doesn't get into best practices nor suggested usages. Just the facts about each feature.
Whirlwinds are bite-sized webcasts, generally shorter than 15 minutes. You can start anywhere in the series to learn about the parts you're most interested in.
This session on C# 4 shows how the compiler handles eventing. The compiler no longer sets locks on events, instead uses a compare and swap technique. Stuart compares C# from .NET 3.5 and .NET 4 to show the differences and explains the implications for your existing code.
